Celebrities are rude to staff, writers and employees

Some of these moments make me so uncomfortable…

Recently, Millie Bobby Brown made headlines after somehow dismissing the authors of Strange things. She says, “[The cast] is way too big. Last night we couldn’t even take a group photo because there were about 50 of us. I was like, you gotta start killing people. The Duffer Brothers are two sensitive Sallies who don’t want to kill anyone. We have to be game of thrones. We must have the spirit of Game of thrones.

The writers responded, saying they are “not game of thrones. “Well, the whole interaction made me think of the times when celebrities were rude and snappy to people behind the scenes – from staff to crew, writers to cameramen, and more.
